Abstract

The difference in the contribution of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to financial performance between firms that have a Chief Executive Officer (CIO) in the top management team (TMT) and those without a CIO in the TMT is investigated. A new and robust method to measure this contribution is proposed. Preliminary results showed that the mean contribution of ERP for firms with a CIO in the TMT is higher than those without a CIO but did not show any statistical significance.
